The non-profit Search Engine & Social Network

There is NO other not-for-profit Social Search Network but for Anoox [1], in particular one with the Millions of users and visitors that we have. And there is a very good reason for this: because it takes Tons of Capital to develop an integrated Search Engine & Social Network, and no VC Wall Street investor would want to make such investment of Capital and then see it operate as a not-for-profit for the benefit of People & Small Businesses on Main Street rather than operate on for Profit basis for the benefit of VC & Wall Street investors on Wall Street. And that is why it took us 10 Years and Tons of sweat equity Capital by volunteers from around the World to develop this network and that is why there is NO other not for profit Search engine & Social network but for Anoox.

Analogy: we are striving to do for Search engine & Social Network, what Linux™ did for OS and what MySQL™ did for Database, which is to pass Billions in SAVINGS to Small Businesses World Wide. But of course a Search engine & Social Network is not just Software to make it Open Source and that will be it in delivering great VALUE & SAVINGS to Small Businesses World Wide. But these are Services where the value is in the Size of the network and running this massive network in a flawless way under the load of Millions of concurrent users, daily attacks by hackers and all the others challenges that comes with running such a massive LIVE network, for the benefit of the Public with the goal of People over Profits ("POP").

It took 10 years of development to make Anoox possible

Anoox means passing Billions in SAVINGS to Main Street rather making Billions for Wall Street

Anoox is to Search engine & Social Media what Linux™ is to Operating System

[1] As of Jan/01/2016, which is the last time we checked, there was NO not-for-profit Social Search Network in operation beside Anoox.
